    Default Where's My Horse?

    I use CSS to put fixed images onto many pages of www.MarainLaw.com. For example, for https://www.marainlaw.com/page.php?here=appeals, this code puts an image onto the upper left corner of the page, as intended:

    Code:
    .appeals {
    	background-image: url("../images/appeal5.jpg");
    	background-repeat: no-repeat;
    	background-attachment: fixed;
    	background-position: top left;
    }
    I use analogous code to place a horse on my Animal Cruelty page:

    Code:
    .animalCruelty {
    	background-image: url("../images/horse.jpg");
    	background-repeat: no-repeat;
    	background-attachment: fixed;
    	background-position: top left;
    }
    I see my horse on mobile, but not on desktop or laptop.

    Note 1: horse.jpg is on the server in its designated folder, as evidenced by its displaying when viewing the Animal Cruelty page on mobile.

    Note 2: horse.jpg did formerly show on the Animal Cruelty page. It just seems to have mysteriously stopped working. I am unaware of any related changes I might have made.

    Note 3. As indicated in Note 1, these fix images are not fixed when viewed in mobile. I do not know why they display differently in mobile, but that is not the focus of this invitation for assistance.

    Can someone help me find my horse?

    Hi there marain,

    I am seeing this image...


    ...on this page...

    https://www.marainlaw.com/page.php?here=animalCruelty

    ...with my two test browsers, Firefox and Vivaldi

    Is it possible that you are experiencing a cache problem?

    Try using the Ctrl + F5 procedure to rectify it.

    Nelly came home. I did not even have to try the Ctrl + F5. She just returned this morning as mysteriously as she previously disappeared.

    I'm afraid this will have to remain one of the mysteries of the universe.

    Thank you for looking at it.

    Postscript:

    Nelly had disappeared from both my desktop and my laptop. She returned to my desktop (as indicated above) without my having to do anything. She was still missing from my laptop when I logged on a short while ago. I did the suggested Ctrl + F5, and it worked! Nelly is back completely.

    Nelly's original disappearance is a mystery to me. The original CSS for her worked on both laptop and desktop. So I do not understand how a page without her got into the cache in the first place. Regardless, God is now in her heaven.

    Thanks again, Coothead.
